Ah, the social media conundrum — a question that has been asked by all of mankind since the dawn of time (or, at least, since we all started getting on Twitter around 2010) — do you post very little and let your friends think you don't have anything cool going on in your life? Or do you post a ton and let your friends think you're totally full of yourself?
Unfortunately, the act of posting on the internet has its own connotations — connotations some people would rather avoid. That's given rise to the "Oops, didn't mean to post, lol"-sort of messages. People try to make it seem like they accidentally sent a message when, in reality, they just posted it like normal but don't want people to realize that they are so extremely online.
The examples we've culled here from the /r/OopsDidntMeanTo subreddit are some of the most embarrassing moments of people "accidentally" sending the "wrong message" at times when, oh gosh, they certainly didn't mean to lol! (You can always tell someone is lying in a post if they end it with "lol.")
To be clear — not one of these posts is an accident, and they're all truly embarrassing for everyone involved.
